Ivy Ready Evaluation should be every applicant’s companion.
— Michelle Levine (Director of College Counseling at Hawthorne Academy)

Ivy Ready Evaluation is an opportunity for prospective applicants to enhance their applications with feedback from former admissions officers.

Once we receive completed applications and transcript (early senior year), a former admission officer will conduct holistic review and share insights for improving submissions. Each package includes evaluation of applications for up to three schools.

A one-of-a-kind evaluation for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity

*Ivy Ready Evaluation makes it easy to identify key areas to improve. Because a significant portion of the application remains constant in each submission, insights gained from the evaluation will enhance every application.

Understanding the Evaluation

The report will highlight the primary strength and setback of the candidate. In addition, we share the best strategy for significantly increasing one's likelihood of admission. Furthermore, we utilize a rating scale to identify risk areas.


If a key area meets the highest Ivy Ready Standards, a rating of Ivy Ready is assigned. Otherwise, the report will indicate Outstanding (above average)Competitive (average), or Developing (below average) next to each section.

Evaluation Benefits

For example, if you discover that your Leadership presentation is not Ivy Ready, we can show you how to incorporate compelling leadership examples. 

Stay Ahead of the Competition

It will only get more competitive to get into highly selective schools. We can show you how to accentuate your strengths & hide your flaws.

A more refined application will increase your likelihood of admission much more than a higher standardized test score. We can make your application Ivy Ready.

Save Time and Money

Applying to many schools is time consuming and costly. We can help you avoid common pitfalls and give you key insights for your best submission.

Impress your Dream School

Your application represents your achievements and potential. We can showcase your accomplishments in a manner that stands out to schools.

Ivy Ready Evaluation helps you discover what's holding your application back; and we can can help you enhance pivotal areas in your application.
